Originally released in 2003.
Following on from the acclaimed Clan Analogue compilation Habitat: Environmental Sound Research, out through Creative Vibes, Clan Analogue Melbourne’s new limited edition sampler CD Sampled Synthesis volume 4 continues to pursue electronic sound to the extremes of the electromagnetic spectrum. For volume 4, Clan Analogue have explored the disturbing underbelly of sonic manipulation, to produce a collection of psychological sonics and tones of indeterminate probability. Listen if you have the will…
